Dream Theater Plan New DVD

(Gibson) Dream Theater are planning to shoot a live DVD in Argentina in August. Dream Theater have traditionally followed up most album releases with a corresponding DVD based on a particular theme or exotic location. The new DVD will be the band's first to feature new drummer Mike Mangini, who took over after Mike Portnoy departed in 2010.

Vocalist James LaBrie told Tri-State Rock that the band planned to work with Mike Leonard, who was responsible for The Spirit Carries On, the three-part documentary which the band used to chronicle their drummer auditions and the decision to welcome Mangini into the band. "We're using Rich Chycki, who's worked on the last few Rush albums as engineer and mixer, and he also worked on the 30th-anniversary DVD with Rush," LaBrie said. "And we have some technological things that are gonna be going on this DVD that should make it quite interesting."

Dream Theater will film two nights August 19 and 20 at Estadio Luna Park in Buenos Aires. "It's a beautiful, beautiful area, and it will be outside, so hopefully the weather gods will work in our favor," LaBrie said. "But yeah, it's a really great place. We thought it was the perfect venue for us to do this DVD. And we're pretty stoked. I think it's gonna be very cool, very unique, and I think it should step it up, once again, from our last official DVD, which was Score, at Radio City Music Hall." more on this story
